Short methodological explanations
The State Statistical Committee of Azerbaijan Republic had worked out resource balance by main types of fuel-energy, raw, material and products in kind. Fuel-energy balance is a source of information for analyze and forecasting, as well as regulation of power economy of the country. The gross energy and fuel balance was calculated on the base of provisional fuel, oil equivalent ratio and joule.
Fuel-energy balance scheme consists of "Resources" and "Distribution".
In the "resources" section it is indicated generation sources of fuel and energy resources, and in the section of "distribution" - its use for main purposes.
Item 1. "Resources" section consists of items characterized generation sources of fuel and energy - extraction (production), import and surplus at the beginning of year.
Item 1.1. "extraction (production)" It is indicated quantity of the each extracted or produced fuel and energy inside of the country and this item is calculated on the base of industry statistics reporting.
Item 1.2. "import" includes quantity of fuel and energy resources imported from foreign states.
Item 1.3 and 2.4 includes surplus of all types of energy at the beginning and at the end of year, which are saved in storehouses, reservoirs and all saving objects of producers, consumers and wholesale enterprises.
"Distribution" section of the balance reflects items characterized practical use of fuel and energy resources, losses (excluding technological losses), export and surplus at the end of year.
Item 2.1. "Consumption inside of the country" indicates fuel and energy consumption by all economic activity types. This item is divided into 2 groups by use destination.
Item 2.1.1. "Conversion into other type of energy" indicates fuel and energy quantity used for receiving of other kind of energy (electricity and heating). It is included losses on conversion of fuel and energy into other types of energy.
Item 2.1.2. "Production - technological and other needs" includes fuel and energy quantity used for production-technological (including losses during technological processes), agriculture, construction, transport, communal-general and other needs, directly as fuel, i.e. quantity of used fuel and energy not converted into other types of energy. This item also covers energy consumption in industry, heating stoves, apparatus and other technological installations, material-working machinery, mechanisms and different transport means, lifting equipments, as well as heating of administration buildings, ventilation system, hot water supply, communal needs. This indicator includes energy consumption in electric power stations and boilers.
Item 2.2. "Losses" reflects losses during transportation of fuel and energy (on long-distance pipeline, losses of energy in gross electrical supply network) and it is also taken into account some shortage indicated in corresponding documents.
Item 2.3. "Export" includes fuel and energy quantity exported nearest and long-distance countries.
"Import" and "Export" is defined on the base of the State Custom Committee and fuel-energy and material statistics report's information.
Domestic consumption, surplus at the beginning and at the end of year, losses are calculated on the base of reports of fuel-energy and material balances statistics.
On calculation of final fuel-energy balance some deviation is connected with rounding of indicators and multiplication of measure unit by conversion ratio.
